Alfy Hill a non-qualifier

You know, in the time that I have lived in North Carolina, the arrogance of UNC ( and the snooty way you want to be referred to as "going to, attending, etc. Chapel Hill") people is simply unbelievable! Tom, you just must be one of the MOST negative people around. Joe Willy was accepted almost 47 years ago, and regardless of what your narrow mind may think, entrance standards have changed. Why don't you take a look at the maneuvering happening with UNC's football program before you get all high and mighty as you appear to be one living in a glass house right now.

The University of Alabama CANNOT accept non-qualifiers per SEC regulations, which is the same procedures followed by other conferences. Conference USA, however, CAN accept non-qualifiers. We also couldn't begin classes- which was last Wednesday- with fewer than 85 scholarship athletes enrolled, so your UNC product assistant coach at West Brunswick either was misquoted by newspapers in making it appear that somehow the university was bailing so fast on Alfy, or he needs to get his butt off of his shoulders. Alfy has gotten bad advice all the way around, but West Brunswick High School failed him. The NCAA makes the lists of classes that they accept in circumstances such as his available for public viewing online EVERY year. Why Coach Fletcher, who is also a guidance counselor, didn't know this is beyond me. Regardless, the NCAA screwed this young man, most importantly, and the university by their actions. We wish him nothing but the best. This should have never happened.
